“Why is summer mist romantic and autumn mist just sad?”
― Dodie Smith

They warned it would be misty this morning but quite how misty – wasn’t expected. I’ve never looked out the window and not been able to see beyond the tree in the front garden. Until today. Usually mist clears with time but it hasn’t shifted a bit in the past hour. It will make the journey to work interesting!


The blog is up nice and early today because I plan to spend the rest of the evening when I finish work, writing essays. It sounds quite fun doesn’t it! But the end really is in sight and I absolutely can’t wait until it’s all over. I’m sure I’ll miss education, after all I’ve been in it for twenty one years – so I’m making the most of these last few hectic study sessions!

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.

Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.”

― Ellen Goodman

So here we are again. Day One. This time last year I was triumphantly finishing up the challenge of taking a photograph a day, revelling in my new found free time. It seems I don’t miss it that much… To start off the 1st of January 2014, I have selected probably the most longest quote possible. But you know what, it rings very true.

This time on the 1st January 2012, there were just three or four of you following this blog. (Hi Mum!) Now, whether you read this or not it’s landing in the ‘feeds’ or email inbox’s of over 1,000 people. I hope that as I progress through 2014 and bombard you with photographs of Buddy (the dog), sunsets and food amongst other things – I hope that I don’t disappoint.


I’m excited to be starting this again, even more so because I have at least four brides and grooms to photograph on four different days this year. I have a family photoshoot in the near future and I’m sure people will be throwing babies and pets my way. In between all of that, I aim to have a little bit of fun and photograph the obscure, the ordinary and the forgotten. For day one, I wanted impact. I wanted to give you rolling hills, famous landmarks, fantastic weather, fresh new starts…Instead, we hit a flood in the road and had to turn back, dejectedly!


However all was not completely lost. With more ventures into the hills we found a few more landscapes, puddles and fallen trees. Pheasants and other birds were also found but not a person in sight. It was deathly quiet. Somewhat nice too!


So for this journey into 2014, and for those that are interested, I will mostly be taking my Photographs with an iphone (for the off days), a Sony D-SLR A57 and a Sony Cybershot (point and shoot). Oh yes and hopefully a GoPro and quadcopter, if  I’m allowed ;)
